Science Project ideas? Update in Red
March 2, 2013 at 12:15 PM

 Our homeschool group is putting on a science fair.  One daughter is working on a solar system model, my son wants to dissect an owl pellet, and my youngest.. well she wants to do a science project that has to do with King Arthur and his knights.  Any suggestions??

She's agreed to possibly do a project that has to do with art, so that might make it a little easier.  She's 8.  Thank you!

    She could do something on the study of Alchemy. How they used to try and turn stuff into gold.

    Does building a catapult and talking about simple yet deadly machines count as Science Fair material?

    Maybe something on trajectory? Ike how knights could improve accuracy for arrows or w/ a trebuchet? Or herbal medicines?

    My boys did it once - built a trebuchet and worked on how to counterbalance for heavier items going longer distances.

     She might be interested in something like this.  She's been sick most of her life and is very interested in all things medical.  My brother is going to school to be a DO and is also very interested in herbal remedies. I'll see if he can help her.  Thanks!

    Or herbal medicines?
